    Shed Features

    This shed is named in honour of my late Grandmother, whom I used to refer to as 'Nana Plum'. It is a custom design, which enables me to have a workshop inside, with an undercover area to season logs which I obtain for our heating purposes. I am a scientist at a local NHS Hospital but I have inherited my father's and Grandfather's woodworking skills. Indeed, I found it particularly satisfying using my late Grandfathers claw hammer in constructing this shed. The tiled roof I am particularly pleased with. The tiles and ridge tiles were salvaged from a local boiler house that was being demolished to make way for a new housing estate within half a mile of our house. This aspect of locally sourced materials, and preserving these fine tiles, is an ethos very close to my heart. The timber is religeously coated with two coats of Cuprinol per year. I can categorically say it is the most reqarding project I have ever undertaken.

    Other Shed info

    Built on a concrete slab, with a single course of bricks providing the support for the sole plate, it is of traditional construction, with uprights and noggins rising to a roof plate, holding a traditional roof construction including rafters and ridge board.
